Tom Hickman: Following the Thread


The date for this event has passed. Please check What's on for current events.

At his home in the small coastal village of New Tolsta on the Isle of Lewis, creating has become a way of life for self-taught artist Tom Hickman, from dry stone walls to wool-work pictures and everything in-between. Whatever the material, he follows his impulse to capture the whimsical, embellish the practical and express the emotional. Using reclaimed Harris Tweed wools he stitches complex high relief stump-work embroidery as well as jovial images of local crofters’ sheep.
